New web-accessible Compound Database called Chemonaut
News Nov 06, 2009
Aggregators, frequent hitters, covalent-acting electrophiles, and various other artifact-generating compounds have been pre-filtered from the 'Screening' set. The removed agents can still be searched in the 'Building Blocks' set. Chemonaut has been assembled by a consortia of global compound vendors and computational chemists and features readily obtainable compounds (solids and/or stock solutions), centralized one-step compound procurement, and plate formatting service in 96-well plates or 96-tube plates. To be brief, for the first time the screening groups outside of pharma (institutes, academic screening centers, small pharma) have access to a huge high quality database and compound collection to test their hypotheses and to generate new structure-activity relationships with leadlike and druglike compounds.
It's easy to take a lot for granted. Scientists do this when they study stress, the force per unit area on an object. Scientists handle stress mathematically by assuming it to have symmetry, but new supercomputer simulations show that at the atomic level, material stress doesn't behave symmetrically. The findings could help scientists design new materials such as glass or metal that doesn't ice up.READ MORE
In late 2017 DeepMind introduced AlphaZero, a single system that taught itself from scratch how to master the games of chess, shogi (Japanese chess), and Go, beating a world-champion program in each case. Today, they announce the evalutation of AlphaZero, published in the journal Science, that confirms and updates those preliminary results.
